I never actually noticed that.. and what's going on here on voat since.. well about then pisses me off. It's unconfortable to read comments about "shitskins" that have plenty of upvoats

If you guys don't like something, either post a reply, or cast a downvoat. Covering your ears and being blind doesn't do anything for change. As an individual you are here to shape what content we see, and to make this a better place. Sometimes I don't do that, but I try to.

Apparently /v/niggers only shows up if google thinks you'd like it for whatever reason. I don't see it at all when I search on my google account or incognito mode. I guess google thinks you're a closet racist :)

How can anyone recommend voat to someone who isn't a racist or extremely right wing politically? One look at the front page will scare away any moderates.

I feel the same. I came here about two months ago and the community was great. I took a bit of a break from browsing here and recently came back. There's been an obvious shift in demographics for the worst. I don't think I'll stay here much longer.

Unfortunately verses like v/news is full of racist posts and comments. I will never support censorship but that doesn't mean people should spew that shit everywhere just because 'it's allowed'... It makes me very sad to see so much support for that crap. In the last few months Voat's basically become just as toxic as Reddit and the cozy feeling I had hanging around here before is steadily disappearing.

[–] tonycongo 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

This gets brought up and upvoated every time like it's some type of actual solution.

Did you know that you can comment on any subverse with your voat account? And that it doesn't restrict, in any way, racists to their racist subredidits?

That's right guys. Voat accounts allow you to post all over the entire site if you'd like!

Right. I must be hypersensitive over those comments where people want to displace and exterminate anyone who isn't white, while others want to create a society where Asians and Hispanics are second class citizens.

I've seen comments like those above on /v/news.

Listen, you condescending shithook, how about you take a peek at my post history on reddit before you start passing judgment? Despite a huge amount of pro-Israeli brigading, I still frequently manage to post comments critical of Israeli policy with positive scores.

You would do well to not speak until you know what you're talking about.

From Reddt: "Reddit is a platform for communities to discuss, connect, and share in an open environment, home to some of the most authentic content anywhere online."

Bull. Shit. Content is manipulated and watered down.

The problem is that over time they keep floating in their infobubble, encouraging, justifying and strengthening each others' beliefs. That's how most extremism is born - members of (semi-)closed groups encouraging one another and selectively providing information (or misinformation).

The echo chamber normalizes extreme behavior which then shifts the local definition of "extreme," soon enough there is a subsection that is actually violent, but they consider themselves "normal"

[–] Biplane 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Which is why im for a rule where subs that actively ban opposing views should not show up in v/all by defualt. If they open doors to discussion 24/7 then i think any sub can stay. Also the downvoat button is just used for silencing opposing views. Imagine if every sub supported free speech and no one could silence anyones opinions, just elivate. I think that would be a pretty rad place B)

You can block v/niggers. The other stuff that pops up in v/news is largely relevant and yes many of the people who have strong opinions about the migrant situation migrated to voat because GUESS WHAT? You are not allowed to have that discussion on reddit.

Finally, with internet anonymity being what it is you're going to get colorful language here and there. I prefer colorful language to thought police.

Yeah I have. I got banned for suggesting that the demographic shift in European populations resulting from the migrant wave will raise crime, harm education and tank those nations social welfare programs. I never even used a slur.

Now r/European you can yes but lets be honest, thats a tiny sub that would be banned just like coontown if it ever attained a certain level of subscribers because the members support ethnic homogeneity (Oh no!)
